"Harry didn’t have to do his homework under the blankets by flashlight anymore; now he could sit in the bright sunshine outside Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor, finishing all his essays with occasional help from Florean Fortescue himself, who, apart from knowing a great deal about medieval witch burnings, gave Harry free sundaes every half an hour."
— Harry Potter visiting Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour[src]

Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour was a shop that sold ice cream. Located in North Side, Diagon Alley, next to the Second-Hand Bookshop,[1] the Parlour was owned and operated by Florean Fortescue before he disappeared in 1996.[3]

Description

The parlour was a small shop with places to sit down inside, and a small area outside with a bunch of tables and chairs. Inside, one could find lots of colourful ice-cream on display.[4]

History

Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour as seen in Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells

On Harry Potter's first visit to Diagon Alley, Rubeus Hagrid presented him with a large ice cream (chocolate and raspberry flavoured with chopped nuts), which likely came from Fortescue's establishment.[5]

Harry bought strawberry-and-peanut-butter ice cream for himself, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger while they strolled around Diagon Alley during their visit in 1992.[6]

When Harry spent three weeks staying at the Leaky Cauldron and hanging around Diagon Alley in August of 1993, he spent a lot of time at the Parlour doing his homework. Mr Fortescue offered advice about medieval witchcraft for a report Harry was writing and served him free ice cream sundaes every half-hour.[2]

In 1996, Bill Weasley mentioned that Mr Fortescue had been "dragged off" by the looks of the ice cream parlour.[3] It was later confirmed that he had been abducted by Death Eaters, and eventually killed.[7] Florean knew information on the Elder Wand and the lost diadem of Rowena Ravenclaw,[citation needed] so Voldemort captured and tortured him. It was stated that the shop was boarded up after Florean's mysterious disappearance.[3] It is unknown what became of the Parlour after his death.
